Why I created the Scoop the Poop Survey

Before kids my baby was a Miniature Schnauzer named Schnapps.   I would walk him on my Brookhaven street and never even thought of bringing a scoop bag with me.  I don’t even think they made them back then!  Well…this was only a problem if he did his business (#1 or #2) in one particular yard.   We avoided that yard like the plague because I did not want to be yelled at by the man who HATED for dogs to even step foot in his yard.   I didn’t understand this until years later when I was walking my then 4th grader to Vanderlyn and he stepped in Read More »

Working Smoke Alarms Saves Lives – Test Yours Every Month

Smoke alarms, properly installed and maintained, save lives!   According to the National Fire Protection Agency, NFPA, a working smoke alarm cuts the chance of dying in a reported fire in half.  Smoke spreads fast when there is a fire.  Smoke alarms give you early detection so you have more time to get out.  Test your smoke alarms every month!

Here are a few important safety reminders from NFPA regarding smoke alarms:

  • Install smoke alarms inside and outside each bedroom and sleeping area as well as on every level including the basement.
  • It is best to interconnect your smoke alarms so when one alarms sound, they all sound.
  • Test all smoke alarms at least once a month.
  • Replace all smoke alarms every 10 years.

Snake Bites on the rise in Dunwoody

I wanted you to alert the folks on your list there seems to be a rash of snake bites this year. My wife was just bitten by a Copperhead on Tuesday while sweeping the driveway (she stepped on it at dusk). She has spent 3 days at the hospital and the swelling from the venom has not gone down, it’s past her knee cap. The snake was small (10 inches), she killed it and took it with her to the ER so they could identify it.

Why I mention this is that a neighbor was also bitten in late July, same scenario, on driveway at dusk, he stepped on the Copperhead also. This is the third bite in 6 weeks that I have heard about in the Dunwoody area, please alert people to watch where they step, it seems Copperheads will only bite if stepped on. Looking around will certainly eliminate the pain and process of healing from a snake bit.

Myth: Chiropractors are strictly back pain specialists.

Fact: While chiropractors can help with back pain, relieving back pain is not our foundational purpose. Chiropractors help improve the body’s ability to heal itself by addressing the health of the nervous system.

A healthy nervous system helps other systems of the body function to their optimal level. This is done by adjusting misaligned spinal bones back into a more normal alignment.

Myth: If you don’t have pain, you don’t need to see a chiropractor.

Fact: Just because pain isn’t present in the body doesn’t mean a person doesn’t have a nerve interference with presymptomatic nerve interference. (Like the early stages of tooth decay.)

To find out if you or someone you love could benefit from safe and natural chiropractic care, give us a call. Read More »
